From the Cambridge News, January 1928 (reprinted in the Cambridge Evening News 9 January 2003, p.8)
Parish miseryHardwick is the poorest parish in the district. The road in the centre of the village was not fit to be called a road. It was one of the most treacherous in England and was getting narrower. They applied for eight houses in 1919 but none were built. There were people in the village whose children were living in other houses.
